The Oceanside Grandmothers are delighted to welcome a special friend, Julia Cairns – Artist and Children’s Book Illustrator. Julia’s world travels and experience of the people in far-off places have been translated from ‘whatever is in my heart’ into fine art for more than 30 years.
Inspired particularly by the African people, Julia developed a unique whimsical style that has become her trademark. Her colourful, cheerful images adorn canvas, children’s books and fabric – some of which decorates the Grandmothers’ popular tote bags.
Julia will share her story on Monday, March 30, 2:00 p.m. at Knox United Church,345 Pym Street, Parksville. Tickets ($15 ) are available at Cranky Dog Music (PV) and Arbutus Fashion and Lifestyle (QB). Refreshments will be served. All proceeds to the Stephen Lewis Foundation Grandmothers Campaign.
Members of Oceanside Grandmothers are encouraged to forward this message to all their friends to publicize the event and, if they wish, click on this link to download a poster to print out and post on bulletin boards: Julia Cairns Poster
